Mako Mermaids (2013–2016): Season 3, Episode 11 - The Truth About Evie - full transcript

Evie's father Doug is not feeling well. David leaves Carly, his new manager, in charge while he goes off to the Young Entrepreneur's Seminar. With Erik late, as usual, Carly becomes overwhelmed at the busy Café. Evie sees her friend in need of a hand and goes to get a tray of sandwiches from the cool room. Evie sneezes onto the sandwiches without covering her face (gross) and a flame comes out and burns them. Zac and Cam show up at the Café for juices. Shortly after, Evie becomes very hot and seems to be producing heat so Zac takes her outside to cool down. Zac, Cam, and Carly witness Evie sneeze again which causes an umbrella to catch fire. Zac and Evie run off. Erik finally arrives to work but Carly has had enough and fires him. At Rita's, Sirena and Mimmi try to help with Evie's cold but they don't really know what to do. Cam tries to make Carly forget what she saw but she does not. When the concoction the mermaids make for Evie seems to have worked, she and Zac return to the Café. Carly wants to know what Evie is hiding. Back at Rita's house, Sirena and Mimmi seem to have caught Evie's cold. While out for a walk with Erik, Ondina sneezes and freezes a nearby plant. Everyone (except Erik) goes back to the Café where more sneezes freeze the counter and then Cam, right in front of Carly. Everyone runs away but Carly (with a frozen Cam in tow) finds them right after all the girls sneeze in unison. That causes snow to fall turning Zac, Evie, Sirena, Mimmi, and Ondina into their mer-forms. Carly is upset that Cam knew the secret but Evie didn't tell her. Will she keep their secret?

[Doug sneezes]

[Evie] Dad, you didn't eat your breakfast.

[Doug] I don't have much of an appetite.

Oh, you look pale.
You feeling okay?

Yeah, I'm fine.
It's just a cold.

Nothing to worry about.

All right, well, just look after yourself.

Yeah, you too.

I'll see you later.


Carly! Wait up.


So, how's things?


Yeah, things.

You mean things with Cam?


Things are good.

"Good"? Is that all I'm gonna get?

Well, it's still so new.

Oh, you're right. I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to pry.

No. No, it's okay.
I really like him.

-And I don't mind you asking.

You're my best friend.
We tell each other everything, right?

David, you look sharp.

It's the young entrepreneur's seminar.
I have to dress for success.

So what are you doing here?

-Just checking on my new manager.
-I'm fine.

-I won't let you down.

I've been looking forward
to this for ages.

The brochure says it's gonna
unlock my full corporate potential.

Where's Erik?

When has he ever showed up on time?

He'll be here. Go!

[Ondina] I guess you have to
go to your job now.

[Erik] I guess.

I'm kind of running late.

[Ondina] You're always running late.

Why do you even bother?

It keeps me busy.

But they can wait five more minutes.

[Ondina chuckles]

-[indistinct conversations]
-I'll be right with you.

Excuse me, we've been waiting a while.
Quite a while, in fact.

-I'll be right with you.
-You've already said that.

I'm a little short-staffed at the moment.

I'll be with you
as soon as I possibly can.

Looks like you could use a hand.

There's a tray of sandwiches
in the cool room.

-Could you grab it for me?
-Coming right up.

-Thank you, you're my hero.
-What are friends for?


-[Zac] Busy.
-Don't worry. We'll get priority.

-I know the staff.

[Carly] It shouldn't be too much longer.

-[Zac] So, you and Carly, huh?


It's good.


-[Zac] Good.

Hey. Nice apron.


Let's see, I'll have
a strawberry smoothie, thanks.

No, make that a passion fruit crush.

Actually, I'll have a tropical bonanza.

Have you ever had a cold,
since you've had your...

You know.

No, why?

I think I might be coming down with one
and it seems to be having

a really strange effect--

I'm sorry to interrupt,

it's just we've got
a bit of a backlog of orders.

I'll be right there.

Uh, two pineapple juices.
Sorry about the wait.

[Zac] I ordered a tropical bonanza.

But this is fine.
This is fine.

[exhales sharply]

When did it get so hot in here?

I hadn't noticed it until now,
but it is pretty warm.

You look like you could do
with some fresh air.

I'll turn the temperature down.

Just take a deep breath, okay?
You have been rushing around.

I think I've caught my dad's cold.

-What are you doing?
-Turning the temperature down.

Why? The temperature's fine.

It was like an oven in here a minute ago.

That's weird.

-Weird things are happening.
-Like what?

I toasted sandwiches.


With my...

Oh, no.

Ah... Ah...



I think the mermaid part of me
is having a bad reaction.

[Zac] What do you mean "bad reaction"?


We have got to get you out of here!

-Come on.

I've had colds before,
but never like this.

Like what?


That doesn't usually happen, does it?

[Evie] No!

Can you help?

I don't have any experience
with this sort of thing.

-Mermaids don't get colds!

-But I'll see what I can do.
-Thank you!

-You want to tell me what I just saw?

spontaneous combustion?

Evie sneezed and an umbrella caught fire.

How does that work?

It's pretty random, hey?

And look at these.

They weren't toasted
when I left them in the cool room,

and Evie is the only other person
who's been in there.

How do you explain that?

Maybe she snuck a blowtorch in.


Look, weird things happen all the time.
Maybe you should just forget about it.

The café could have burnt down
while I was in charge.

How can I forget about it?

Why aren't you looking at me?

-Aren't I?

In fact, I think you're trying
not to look at me.

No way!
I like looking at you.

You know something.

No, I don't know anything...
about anything.

[Erik] Hey, guys.

What's happening?

I'll tell you what's happening.

We're busier than ever
and we're short-staffed

because one of our waiters
didn't show up, again.

Relax, I'm here now.

Not good enough.

[Erik] I'm always a few minutes late.

David doesn't seem to mind

and he's the boss.

Well, today I'm your boss,

and you're fired.

Carly, come on.


We'll see what David has to say.

He'll be back later.
Until then, consider yourself unemployed.

Some dried octopus tentacle.

Cod liver oil?

It's worth a try.

-Just a couple of drops.
-Oh, no. Ah...

ah, ah--

-Please hurry!
-Please hurry! [panting]

-[Zac] It's okay.
-[cell phone rings]

Oh. [gasps]

It's Carly!


Evie, it's me.
Can you come back here?

I really don't want to let David down.
He's relying on me.

Uh, I'm really sorry, but I can't.
I've got this horrible cold.

Right. So what did you do
to that umbrella?

The umbrella?

You know the one that burst into flames
when you sneezed?

Oh, right!
[chuckles nervously]

That umbrella.

Yeah, that was weird.

Can you explain to me how you did that?


Not... Not really.

I thought we didn't have any secrets.

We don't!

Look, if you know something, tell me.

-I can't. I have to go.


-How can I possibly explain this?
-You can't.

Well, maybe I should
just tell her the truth?

You know we can't risk that.

Well, I should go back
and apologize

-for running out on her.
-[Zac sighs]

[Mimmi] Okay.

Try this.


Gross! What is that?

It's probably better if you don't know.

Drink up.


That was disgusting!

But I feel better now.
That stuff's magic!

[both chuckle]

Okay, okay, so 12 is two juices
and the soup of the day.

No, that was table ten.
Twelve had three juices and two salads.

-But 12 also has two juices and a soup--
-No, I'm telling-- Cam, I'm telling--

-Twelve does have it though--
-Cam, the grill!

Okay. Now probably isn't
the best time to tell you

that I don't cope very well
with high pressure situations.

I'm going to pretend I didn't hear that.

Are you sure you're feeling all right?

Should I get the fire extinguisher
just in case?

It's okay. I feel fine now.


I owe you an apology.

Yes, you do.

And I look forward to hearing it,

but, in the meantime,
take this to table 12.




Short story. Evie was here.

She had some kind of weird cold,
but I think I cured it.

Aren't land people supposed to stay in bed
when they've got something contagious?

Well, yes, but I'm sure we'll be fine.

Mermaids don't get colds.

[exhales sharply]

Does anyone else feel hot?

Here we go, one vanilla milkshake.
Sorry about the wait.

[sighs] Can you dry that up?
It's a safety risk.

I'll do it.

No, I need you on the juicer.


I'll get some gloves, um...

[Carly] What's the matter?
It's just water.

[Evie] Can I ask you a hypothetical?


Let's just say I have a secret.

And I want to tell you
because you're my best friend.

I'd say you should tell me.

But I can't because...

Because it involves other people.

Well, if these other people
are more important to you...

are we really best friends?

Of course we are.

So stop beating around the bush and tell.

I want to, I just...

I-- I'm a--

Fine, don't tell me.
I have to clean this up.


Now I feel hot.

You don't think
I'm coming down with it too?

You're the one who said
mermaids couldn't get colds.

Ah... Ah...


I'll go make some more potion!

Maybe it's time I just told her the truth.

No. You did the right thing.

Just ignore it.
I'm sure she'll forget about it.

You don't know Carly like I do.

She won't let this go.

-[wind howling]

Oh, is it cold in here?

[Zac] Oh, no.

[Ondina] I feel guilty
about you losing your job.

It'll be fine.
Carly just doesn't like me.

I'll sort it out with David.

-[wind howling]

Are you feeling okay?

Yeah, I'm fine.

I feel so much better now

I've washed that gross taste out
with nice, clean salt water.

Me, too.

My potions might work,
but they're not exactly tasty.

[both laugh]

[wind howling]


-What's going on?

[both] Ah... Ah...


[both sneezing]

[shakily] I don't think the potion worked.


[Evie sneezes]


The, uh, potion did not work.

How are we going to explain this one?

[all shivering]

[Mimmi] Evie!

We have to go back to Rita's
and try another cure.

Before things get worse.

Why are all the customers leaving?

Whoa, it's like Antarctica in here.

-And what is all this?
-[wind howling]


Evie's not feeling well.
She has to go.

Oh, no.
Not until you tell me what's going on.

Actually, I've been reading about this.

There's this virus, right,
that affects temperature...

[mermaids] Ah... Ah...

[all sneeze]

I'm going home!


We have to tell her the truth.
It's the only thing she'll believe.

We can't.

She's this close to finding out anyway!
And Cam knows.

The less people who know, the better.

She is my best friend.
I don't want to lose her.


[all] Ah... Ah...

[all sneeze]


[wind howling]




Evie, I need answers!

Carly, there's something you should know.



Here you go.
Hot honey and lemon.

[shakily] Thanks.

Now I know how an ice cube feels.


Why didn't you tell me?

I'm really sorry.

I wanted to.

But I had to protect the others.

Did Cam know?


But not me.


Well, it looks like
you might have recovered,

but you should definitely drink this.

You sure it'll work?

I've encountered more than a few colds
in my time on land.

This is definitely the right recipe.

It tastes a lot better than Mimmi's.

No offense.

So do you think Carly
will keep our secret?

I don't know.

I lost track of time,
and I'm sorry about that.

I didn't mean to let Carly down.

But she can't fire me.

Sorry, Erik.

I left Carly in charge,
and as I learnt at the seminar today,

you should always
back your manager's decision.

Of course, you're always welcome
as a customer.

Would you like a juice?


I'm sure we can make her understand.

-[Zac sighs]
-What if we can't?

[Carly] I just have one thing to say.

Do the tails come in different colors?

[all chuckle]
